That’s pretty scary @Matata...I think it's prudent to stock up on 2 weeks worth of cold meds, soup, disinfectants and other necessities as one might do during cold/fu season and keep up to date on the news regarding impact in individual areas to determine if longer term planning is necessary. I'm also stocking up on the masks that we use during fire season.
My city as well as those to the north and south are retirement meccas. The majority of my neighbors are elderly with health issues. My hubs, who is a physician, said none of the local hospitals currently have enough ventilators to handle the anticipated numbers of ill people when the virus arrives here. Those anticipated numbers include a large portion of homeless folk.
